The Good Among The Greatby Donald Van de Mark
The Good Among the Great offers an in-depth look at what makes a few high achievers also good people. The book focuses on 19 personality traits originally identified by psychologist Abraham Maslow. The author not only illustrates these traits with lively stories drawn from more than 25 years interviewing prominent leaders for CNN, CNBC, and other television news programs, he also shows how the traits are exhibited by people in all walks of life. His examples span the famous (Meryl Streep, Charles Schwab, and Andrew Weil) to the great but not well known (Poosie Orr, mother and housewife; Rachel Walton, pediatric hospice nurse; and Andrew Ferguson, teacher). Practical, common-sense guidelines show readers the shortest route to personal and professional achievement and fulfillment.
